      Same tbh, and i thought the franchise was dead...



      GUESS WHAT???

      Was the second one any good? All I remember is the bad cgi gun appearing out of a motor scooter during a trailer. That shit was hilariously badass.

      I've heard mixed things. Personally, I enjoyed it for what it is. There's a decent amount of funny moments in it and good lines/jokes. The only real problem I can give it is it gets rid of a lot of the funny characters in the original and replaced them with less funnier characters. For example, deleted scenes showed English's original sidekick, Bough was due to be in the movie before being replaced with Tucker (a new sidekick). 

      Also, I had no idea there was a third movie planned.

      @Ryannumber1gamer Ah O.K. well I think my dad might have on DVD some where in the house so I'll give it a watch one day. If not I'll see if I can find a copy for cheap.

      Aw what can't they leave well enough alone.

      I loved the first movie, but the second movie just felt a bit forced.  It was okay, but it kind of fell flat humour-wise, feeling more like a "typical spy movie with funny bits" rather than a total quintessentially british-focused farce of the genre where every single scenario was ridiculous.  The sequel was more about typical spy stuff that English goes about solving in a ridiculous manner, rather than the scenarios themselves being ridiculous.

      As such I enjoyed the second one for what it was, but mentally "disowned" it as a thing that exists.  I far prefer to enjoy the original as a standalone film that was perfectly self-contained in it's story and gags.

      Take my opinion with a pinch of salt though coz while I watched the original many times, the sequel I only watched once and as such have forgotten a good deal of it lol.

      EDIT: Also that's a surprise to learn Bough was gonna be in it at one point.  I assumed the actor wasn't available but deleted scenes suggest he was?  Maybe plans changed mid-way, or they decided it wasn't worth confusing people who didn't see the first film... or something.

      Ironically, I think I have the same thoughts in regards to the Mr. Bean movies. I love the first one but while the second one is technically more faithful to the silent brand of humour in the Mr. Bean show, I don't enjoy it anywhere near as much as the original and as such, prefer to see the original Bean movie as it's standalone thing.

      And still I haven't seen any of them.

      That's absolutely insane to me because Mr Bean's Holiday is one of my favourite feelgood films of all time lol.  I love the first film too but there's no doubt that it's the black sheep of the franchise, and honestly a bunch of gags are lifted directly from the TV show (and feel cheesier because they're scored with silly comedy music rather than being silent like in the original sketches).

      But in Bean's case there's not a huge amount of continuity anyway so it's all good.  You can watch the original show, the first movie, the second movie or any combination of the three and still get a completely solid self-contained experience.

      Hated the cartoon, but that's a completely different demographic anyway.
